January Stamp Club

Hello All,

Thought I better get some of my projects posted before it's too late.  I can't believe that January is already over and Valentine's Day is only 14 days away!  The theme for January's Stamp Club was a  Valentine's Day Theme.  So today I have the Make and Takes to share with you. 

First up here's the Group Pic for you:

From left to right:  The Sealed With Love Simply Sent Valentine's Day Treat Holder,  The Mini Treat Tote Valentine Box, and The Hearts A Flutter Valentine's Day Card. 

We had a lot of FUN making these Valentine's Day Goodies.
I just Love the More Amore Specialty Designer Paper !

The Sealed With Love Simply Sent Valentine's Day Treat Holder was just about the easiest thing to make ever!  It was the FREE part of the "My Little Valentine" promotion in January, but the good news is you can still purchase the Simply Sent Sealed With Love for just a while longer.  The Order number is:    #126923 for $7.95

The Mini Treat Tote Valentine Box is my take on a cute project that I saw on Dawn Olchefske's Blog.  Dawn has a video to show you how to make the Mini Treat Tote Box.  Just click ( Here ) to get there.   I used Primrose Petals cardstock, More Amore Specialty Designer Paper, Fashionable Hearts Embosslits, 1 1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon (Pink Pirouette/Rose Red), Small Oval Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Owl Builder Punch and the greeting is from the Seasonal Sayings Stamp set.

This Darling Hearts A Flutter Valentine's Day card is from Chat Wszelaki's January Tutorial.  I'm really liking the color combo for this Valentine's Day !!  Since I was out of the Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, I used the Pool Party Ribbon from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack.  This is one of the FREE Products that you can choose from the Sale-A-Bration brochure when you spend $50 before shipping and tax.  You can check out Chat's tutorial by clicking ( Here )

A BIG Thank You to Dawn and Chat for sharing their creativity!!

Start planning your Valentine's Day gifts today!!

As always I  "Thank YOU"  for taking a minute or two to stop by today !!!

Happy Stamping !!!

Hearts A Flutter Card!

Hello Ladies,

Hope that everyone had a great weekend.  It was a long weekend, but a busy one for me.

This was one of the first stamp sets that I ordered from the Spring Catalog.  I just Love it !!

So here we go with the Group picture !!

I really like the color combo with the Pool Party, Pink Pirouette and Primrose Petals !! 
I especially love the New Honeycomb Embossing Folder, such a wonderful folder!!
The sentiment is from the "You are Loved" Stamp set.

Last Minute Valentine Gift

Good Evening Ladies,

A few weeks back, right before Christmas I posted the Last Minute Gift Nugget Holder for Christmas.  You can click ( Here ) to check it out.  The original creator for this idea is Dawn Olchefske.

Well, I thought I would give this project another go round, but this time with a Valentine Twist.  It makes such a wonderful gift to give to a co-worker, a neighbor or a good friend!   I'm thinking my UPS person needs to receive one of these for Valentine's Day!  What do you think?  Oh, yeah.

So here it is - a Last Minute Gift Nugget Holder for Valentine's Day !!

I just LOVE the "More Amore" Specialty Designer Paper!
Such awesome colors for Valentine's Day with a Twist of Pool Party.

Here's a closer view for you:

 Here's what you need:

Cardstock Base is: 3" x 5" scored @ 1 3/8"
A small cello bag - (retired)
Cardstock Mat is: 1 1/4" x 2 7/8"
Designer Paper is: 1" x 2 5/8"

Dude, You're Welcome !!

Dude, You're Welcome!

We're excited to introduce our new, very manly stamping kit: the Dude, You're Welcome! kit. Guys don't always have the easiest time expressing themselves, but with the Dude, You're Welcome! kit, they'll have a kit that includes everything a dude needs to create the perfect manly card that any woman would adore, all packaged in an appropriately masculine box:

Dude, You're Welcome!
Item #132807
Preferred Price: $24.95

As a guy, it’s not always easy to express yourself. You know you want to say it, but you just don’t know how. That’s why we’ve created the Dude, You’re Welcome! Kit. Quickly build a card that says just what you want it to say, whether it’s because you messed up (when does that happen?), for a Special Occasion (you know the occasion), “I _____ You” (love, adore, miss, see?), or a simple “Thank You.” We’ve got your back. Dude, you’re welcome.

Kit includes:
* Four wood-mount stamps (double-mounted) with the perfect sentiment for every occasion
* Twelve 4" x 6" postcards in four different (manly) colors
* Twelve gray envelopes
* A Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad
* An instructional guide (for the most novice stamper!)

Thanks for stopping by to visit!
Happy Stamping !!

I made some similar ones Last Year, but when I saw the Hearts a Flutter Project Planner, it was one of the first things that I decided to make.  The Lollipops can be found at Michael's in the Wedding Favor section.

Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek!!

Hello Ladies,

I thought since I had a spare couple of minutes that I would try to get this Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek card posted.  I know, shocking that I have another card to share and it hasn't been two weeks to get it posted.  For some reason I forgot that I had so many Birthdays at the end of December and then in January.  So I was trying to find the perfect Masculine Birthday card.  I struggle so many times with them.

But luck was on my side when I stopped by Mary Fish's blog - Stampin' Pretty.  I was so excited that I would be able to get all my cards done!!  So this is my take on Mary's card.

The Feeling Sentimental stamp set will be a Sale-A-Bration set that you can choose for FREE when you spend $50. 

Here is a close up view for you .  I changed up the colors and used a different design from the Parker's Pattern Designer Series Paper which is in the Spring Catalog. 

Cardstock - Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla
Ink - Versa Mark
Early Espresso Embossing Powder, Metallic Brads, Stampin' Distress Tool

You can check out Mary's card by clicking (Here)

 As always a BIG Thank You to Mary for the inspiration !!

Thanks for stopping by today !!

Happy Stamping !!!
